Gamescom: Until Dawn Has Hundreds of Ways to Kill You; New Gameplay FootageHorror gaming is a monster in and of itself. Yet, one monster has been seemingly absent from the bloody masquerade of video games… the slasher. That is all changing with Supermassive Games’ upcoming slasher film-inspired Until Dawn.

The game made a stunning debut during Sony’s press conference, where they were keen to point out the large role the element of choice will play in the game. The news was already promising, but the developers just revealed how deep the infernal pit goes…

Until Dawn will feature thousands of storyline branches and hundreds of endings. The game accomplishes this through the use of what Supermassive calls “the butterfly effect.” When a choice must be made, such as whether or not to pick up a book, a small butterfly icon will appear, indicating this choice will have consequences later in the game. The path you choose will lead you to one of Until Dawn’s hundreds of endings.

The choices that shape the game’s path can be something as simple as which door you open to something as pressing as whether or not to put a bullet in your friend’s brain. Sony pointed out at its press conference that every character can die in the game, and if they die, they stay dead and the game moves on. Until Dawn will alter its story based on character deaths, having unique endings based on the number of characters still alive.

Until Dawn was first announced two years ago at Gamescom for the now defunct PlayStation Move. Supermassive has since re-tooled the game with top tier Hollywood writers and actors, including Scream 4 actress Hayden Panettiere.

No release date has been attached to Until Dawn, but it has already appeared in the PlayStation Store pre-order section. However, at the time of writing this article, the content is not selectable. Until Dawn will appear exclusively on the PS4.

Zac Efron Looks Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Ted Bundy

Published

on

We told you a while back that Zac Efron would be assuming the role of charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger’s new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (that title is a wondrous mouthful); and today Efron himself took to Twitter to share the first image of himself as Bundy. Check it out!

Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

Principal photography began back in October 2017.

Make a Date With The Devil and Father Amorth

Published

on

Well, that headline’s not entirely accurate… you wouldn’t want to be a third wheel now, would you? What we’re talking about here is William Friedkin’s new documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. In it Friedkin witnesses first-hand the work of the Vatican’s in-house exorcist; and if that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will!

Deadline is reporting today that we can expect to see the flick sometime this spring in theaters via The Orchard.

Known as the “Dean of Exorcists,” Father Amorth (who turned 92 not so long ago) has performed thousands of exorcism rituals to rid evil from the human body.

In the early 1970s when I directed The Exorcist, I had not witnessed an exorcism; but I wondered how close I had come to portraying reality,” Friedkin tells the site. “I had been curious to meet Father Amorth for many years; and when he granted permission to meet and film him in Rome last May, it was the opportunity to complete the circle and see how close that film came to reality.
